More 404 informational pages - blacked out first, no less...

Cross posted from the Loose Change Forum:

Okay, check it out...

First read the background information found in this thread:

http://s15.invisionfree.com/Loose_Change_Forum/index.php?showtopic=11750

about a story I quoted a few weeks back (on one of the military units working with the Secret Service in NYC on 9/11). The story went 404 after I quoted it; it had been online since shortly after 9/11.

Now check this out:

As part of my research, I did some Googling of the names of the soldiers mentioned in the story. A few hits, including bios on two of them on Salute to the NETCOM Hero (it was located on the site http://www.netcom.army.mil )

Now our heroes seem to have all gone 404.

Not only that, but the text appears blacked out on the Google caches (except for the highlighted search terms, of course. Whatta pity.




Call me a sentimental fool, but I'd like to remember our heroes. Therefore, I've taken the liberty of viewing the source code on the caches and copying and pasting the text of them here.



SFC Stephen Atha has served with the Communications Management Support Team since August 1998, and has played a critical role in the support of the United States Secret Service. While on mission in New York on Sept. 11, 2001, he dedicated himself to assisting in the rescue and evacuation of Secret Service employees and other persons who were injured at the scene of the World Trade Center Complex. SFC Atha was instrumental in the 2004 Presidential Campaign. During the campaign, he was the Operations NCOIC and executed multiple protective communications missions in support of Senators Kerry and Edwards. SFC Atha was selected over his peers to serve as NCOIC of the CMST, a nominative E-8 position. He directed team members to support the 2005 Presidential Inauguration without incident. This is emblematic of the professionalism and the "Make It Happen" attitude that is within him. His professionalism and actions make him a true NETCOM hero.
